Damn you Kenny Holland...you offered better contracts but didn't do some kind of voodoo s*** to get guys to come here....seriously, WTF do you want Holland to do?   He made better or equal offers and lost players to teams that are no better or worse than we are. 

 

What exactly should he do?

 

Retire

No, it's what he should have done a looooooooooong time ago when he knew Lidstrom was retiring, etc.

The bottom pairing was the issue. Not Q. Quincey and Dekeyser were actually very solid together. Sure he is overpaid, but it's free agency. Everyone is. People really need to chill. Other UFA's didn't want to come here. Get over it.

This is for Kenny


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

What exactly should he do? 

 

I want Holland to do his job well.  He's been flailing over the last several years.   The reason they're not coming here is because players aren't excited at the prospect of playing for the Red Wings anymore.  That's on Holland.

 

No one is saying his job isn't extremely difficult, but it's that way for 29 other GM's.  As I said in another thread, replace Holland's name with Dan Cleary.  Cleary outworks just about everyone on the team which is admirable but he simply doesn't get the results to be competitive at the NHL level.  

 

Is that acceptable because he's a great guy who's trying with everything he's got?   

 

I don't care how hard Holland tried.  Results matter.  He's not getting any.

The man got a raise. A RAISE.

 

Who cares? The other players went elsewhere. It's not like that money was gonna be spent elsewhere. I get being disappointed in not landing a big UFA today, but the amount of hate and overreacting going on in here is ridiculous.

I have lost all hope with Holland. How in the hell does anybody seriously think this moron is an NHL hockey player? Its July 1st and I already know how the upcoming season is going to go :evil:

Except isn't Q headed for the 3rd pairing? 

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

Dekeyser - Smith

Kindl + Quincey

Lash

 

oof. 

 

If you don't see the second bolded part as an issue... something to worry or fret or freakout over... Well, then I don't know what to say.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

Whatever. Get over it. Move forward. Hope for the best. Prove the haters wrong.  Be thankful Detroit still has a team. Going to be hard to watch, but we aren't the Dead Wings again yet.  Even if we are down the road, I'll still watch this team and support it.

 

I agree, but man, I feel embarrassed and sad at the same damn time.

I personally would've rather seen kids from GR get their chance at the #5, and #6 spots on defense.

It's Holland's fault people don't want to play here?  The Leafs and Caps are soooooo much better?   The Rangers...I can get that, NY has a hell of a pull....but you will not convince me that the name "Detroit" isn't  a bigger issue than the GM.
